Here's a list of non-game related objects that I saw but didn't buy at a car boot last week:

A half bottle of Pimms
A quarter bottle of vodka
Half a loaf of mouldy bread
A box of Weetabix with two left in the box
A stuffed cat
A rampant rabbit vibrator (which was... shall we say... used).

Passed on a Turbo Grafx with 4 games from CEX in Hull a few weeks back while on Holiday, had a look in the box, all there but with a custom paint job.....a Nice Neon Green!! But all the painter had done was spray on top of the machine so it was flakeing! Could maybe have returned it to its original state with a chemical wash but they still wanted £65 for it. Wish I'd got a picture but was too busy pissing myself with laughter about it....

Didn't buy Suikoden V on PS2 when I saw it going for £5 in the pre-owned section in HMV several months back.

Checked eBay that night, got a sudden 'change of heart', went back the next day and it'd gone. :(

An Atari 2600 Woody and about 20 games in a cardboard box for a £1.
Frankly, I just could not be arsed. I'm not a big Atari fan anyway.

I regret not picking up a ghetto blaster for £4 a few weeks ago. Tidy one with all the graphic equalisers and stuff. Been ideal for kicking out Motorhead on the patio :P

You're not going to believe this, but today's car boot featured ANOTHER vibrator! At least this one was boxed though. There was also a plug-n-play famiclone which I already own.

My lovely fiancee thinks it is a travesty that I didn't mention the bottle of vinegar.

I was sorely tempted to pick up a HUGE box stuffed to the gills with 'Commando', 'Battle' and other similar small comic books, this morning. I used to read them by the boatload when i was a kid....dunno why i didn't make an offer really :(

Not exactly passed up as such, but a few weeks ago I was going to buy a Turbo Grfx 16 on Ebay. Put in one bid and then got rushed in to hospital with abdominal pains. Turns out I'm type 1 diabetic. Normal blood sugar level is around 4, mine at the time was 38.

By the time I got back a couple of days later it had gone to somebody else.

Drop me a pm if your still looking for one, if you tell me the size, style, colour, desired features and budget Ill keep an eye out on my searchs and drop you a pm if I find something.
Things I didnt buy but thought about are as follows:

N64
Gameboy Carry case
working 70's Hitachi TV
Gamecube
Model of a rolls royce
Too many records to list
Younger Ghetto blasters
60's record player with built in speaker
A haunted house game that I remembered from my youth (only failed due to not having enough money left)
80's Personal CD player
Car manuals
PS2
C64 (In my defence it did look battered)
Watching you sleep since 1990

2 things I never bought that haunt me to this day...

Euro versions of Metal Slug and Kizuna Encounter on the AES, bought a japanese Metal Slug to save 50 quid which is a small error. Instead of buying Kizuna I decided Soccer Brawl was the game to buy :lol:
